Sat's 2010 Pt. III: Live

I didn't go to nearly as many concerts this year as I have in the past. I used to attend anything that sounded remotely interesting, but these days I mostly just go to shows that I simply can't justify missing. Here are some of the best shows I saw in 2010, in order.
8The State Lottery
When the Night Comes

(The Trumbullplex - Detroit) Seeing this shit on New Year's Eve! Good way to end 2010 if you ask me.
7The Antlers

6The National

(Royal Oak Music Theatre) For a show featuring two bands that are undeniably depressing at times, this was a really good time.
Jane Doe

(The Magic Stick - Detroit) I saw them play previously, but it was when they were opening for the profoundly boring Mastodon. This time, they seemed to feed off the energy of a crowd that predominantly came to see them, and it translated to a MUCH more intense show... Coalesce was pretty good, too.
4The Gaslight Anthem
Sink or Swim

3The Hold Steady
Boys and Girls in America

(The Crofoot - Pontiac) Yeah, that's right. The two Americana/indie/punk-ish juggernauts were headlining separate tours that happened to converge on Detroit for one night. I'd seen each of them a few times prior, but seeing them play together made for an unforgettable night.
2LCD Soundsystem
Sound of Silver

(The Fillmore - Detroit) I was definitely a fan of this band going in, but I really wasn't at all prepared for how great James Murphy & co. are live. They played essentially all of my favorite songs, and had fucking EVERYBODY dancing. Easily one of the most fun shows I've ever been to.
1Bomb the Music Industry!
Album Minus Band

(Mac's Bar - Lansing) Jeff Rosenstock is without a doubt my favorite musician. I pretty much nerded out on him when I met him at the bar before the show. He was incredibly nice and bullshitted with me for like 15 minutes. Bomb played a killer set and I found myself on the stage singing the conclusion of "Syke! Life Is Awesome!" on a vacated mic.
